Earlier on I refrained from whinging and moaning about the bloody pots her and the young man had left at tea time. I seethed inwardly and silently as she just dumped her coat and boots in the dining room.
I went to bed about 10pm to TRY to sleep. I think I fell asleep about 11.30 ish. I woke with a start at 2am in full on heart thudding panic mode convinced I'd slept through the alarm. Then I was just laid there til the alarm did go off. I got up, made sure madam was up, which they were and went downstairs.
The bags were triple checked for all travel stuff. I fuss fuss fussed her. Theo was strapped in, she was hugged, told she was loved and waved off with all the Bon Voyages in the world wished upon her.
Me n the HG trudged back inside freezing cold now. I went to stand forlornly in her bedroom doorway to feel all fondness and love.
Imagine that sound when a record gets the needle abruptly scratched across it to a stop.
It is EXACTLY like that Tracey Emin's art exhibit.
It is a tip! I am far too ashamed to take a photo! I'm FURIOUS!!! Bloody kids lol
Still, I don't know why I'm acting all surprised. She was tidying her room for seven solid years through teenagedom!
It'll give me something to do while she's not here!!
I've just been looking for some photos of when we decorated it for her. It's a gorgeous room! Just not at the moment!
You can't even see that beautiful carpet at the moment!
It's 8am and she'll be in the sky now. ( good job else I'd be throttling her!! )
This is the text she sent at just past 5am this morning.
Checked in waiting to hand my bag over, leaving here at 7:55 land in Amsterdam at 10:20 leave at 1230 and arrive in China at 6:45 tomorrow then I get to Newzealand at 6:40 but it will be 7 here on Wednesday night
I've friended the two girls she's going exploring with and all I have to do now is wait to hear she got there safely and then watch the Internet to see all the photos.
I feel sick right now, just sheer tiredness as I didn't sleep properly the night before either! The children are back in school today and it's going to seem like a LONG LONG time until I finish!
I'm off for some breakfast!
Lots of love from
